I had this for Atari 2600. Great game, but that damn music never left my mind.

I loved this game when I was little, and I loved it when I played it months ago on my NES. It's a really good port of the arcade game.
The NES port seemed easier than the arcade game to me.
I once talked about this game in the Retro forums.
I can't wait to read the review!!

For those of you that are not aware: you can punch out the vulture in Stage 3, whether or not you're in Spinach Form.

I love Popeye. The NES game is fun, I would love to play the arcade version, the graphics in the arcade version of Popeye look very impressive for it's time.

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man!
I fights to the finish
And then eats me spinach
I'm Popeye the Sailor Man!

I used to own this for Nes when Gamestop was still selling/trading Nes items. Fun, but gets a little old fast. The music is also a little annoying, I seem to remember.
